    The bubble lights look awesome & cool thinking on switching the fan blades, I've often thought it would be great is some fans had better motors, & now you've gone & done it I don't know the techy side if they'll be fine, but I don't really see why not, transformer fans ftw .

    I think it's an alcohol based liquid, so yeah it has a low boiling point, and since it's sealed it has nowhere to evaporate to. I've always loved them during christmas time, never thought you could work it into something though. Nice.

    Default Suggestions?

    Been a while since I updated this, and I'm sorry to say there are no updates today, just a question for the masses.

    I'm going to have eight fan/speed control knobs on the front of this case, via two 4-channel controllers, and I'm trying to think of something I can use for the knobs themselves. My first thought was Bakelite knobs off of some old electronics, and that would work, but the odds of finding eight identical knobs are slim in my area, and I was thinking something older-looking would be better. The best I could come up with were small valve handles like these, in brass. Problem is, they have to be tiny, like an inch in diameter.

    Anyone have any suggestions?


    Edit: Small brass dials off of combination locks would be absolutely perfect, but cost-prohibitive.

    I think those valve handles would look great.

    These would also be great, but McMaster doesn't have them small enough. Which means they don't exist.

    What about keyholes and brass skeleton keys?

    What do these look like?
